Im sure this has been covered off 100 times before but as im new here I have no idea where to find the right answer so im hoping someone here can help. I have a 2tb elements external hard drive and yesterday my drive stopped working. I think it may of had a power surge or something as the plug had some exposed wires. Ive gone and bought a new power lead and the hard drive will still not power up at all.
1st question, how can I determin what is actually stopping it from working.
2nd question. If it is the power can I fix this easily enough?
3rd question, If the answer is its broken has anyone had any experience in using an adaptor that you plug the actual hard drive into which gives you access to my data?
Thanks for any help.
